it is recommendet as a seafood restaurant. however, when i asked if the fish is fresh from the cost the staff sharply neglected and said the fish is mainly from vietnam.

I ordered the recommendation, 'lomo stroganoff'. the food was no prepared fresh, only warmed up and you could see the rotten dots on the creamy sauce. The normal menu was around $ 21 (USD).

Stay away!

The food here was pretty average but the staff made up for it as they were attentive and accommodating... The roast chicken was bland and the kids who are pasta monsters... Seem indifferent about their dinner.

We eventually ate here despite some of the reviews, as we'd tried many of the other restaurants in Colonia del Sacramento during the 6 days we spent in this town. I wouldn't describe any of them as excellent, and we tried 12 (Lunch and dinner)!

It's in a lovely position, and the food we had was equal to any that we ate in Colonia. The waiting staff were extremely friendly and cheerful, and we certainly felt that they cared about all the customers. The menu and the prices were the same as everywhere else.

It's a lovely spot to sit outside at sunset, as a change from being right down on the waterfront. The little street leading down to the sea lends itself to some beautiful sunset photos.

We ordered the calamari to start, and the breading was at least a half inch all around. Once the breading was picked off, the squid itself was rubbery and tasteless. I got the spinach ravioli, which were horrible and covered in a "sauce" that can only be described as nasty ketchup. I couldn't eat more than a couple of bites. Hubs got the half portion of lomo strogonoff, which was OK if you could taste anything through the salt.

I really need to stop relying on travel guide books for restaurant recommendations!

It rained the whole day we were in Colonia which rather dampened our spirits and this restaurant did nothing to raise them. Very few people in, so there was no atmosphere. Service and food were average and after our first few days in Argentina, we thought it was expensive. Perhaps it would be better on a sunny day.
